It's been a mild inconvenience for years - having to ask other people (me) to look up things online that she's heard G Ryan talking about or keep an eye out for "the cheap Ryanair flights" - but Mam is now properly raging that she can't work the interweb. That's because today I am on the Irish Independant website for their My Make-Up And Me feature and - merciful hour - there is a photo.
As you can see, I have yet to get the hang of not looking like a complete eejit in a profile pic. (Mam will, of course, think that I look lovely. The fact that I am not only smiling but showing some teeth will probably have her devoting novenas left, right and centre.)
If I'd just been practising taking my own photo for Bebo and De Facebuke for the last couple of years like everyone else I'd have this profile photo business down to a fine art by now.
Thanks so much to the lovely Sinéad Van Kampen (who you may know from such brilliant blogs as TheSavvyShopper.ie) for asking me to take part!
